Excellent wall of sound gorgeousness - this 'trix may have you wincing at the continual clapping, but it isn't that bad, and the band sounds like they're right.....over.....your head! What a cool sound this board offers - i have heard this classic in a few different forms and will probably be sticking with this one from now on.

While the audience here is relatively innocuous and cutey-fun, this dude does NOT abide the ingrate yelling at Phil & Ned to get off the stage during Seastones; someone get that guy a "drink".

That's what we say in CT, a wicked good show and a wicked good matrix mix, five stars no doubt!! I have friends that were at this show, hi Hig, and now I feel like I was there too. Thanks Kevin for mixing and posting, and of course the GD for their enlightened live music sharing policy that has enriched my life so greatly.

Subject: Wonderful Recording, Truckin’> MLB jam> Spanish jam> Wharf
Wow, great matrix that might just supplant the soundboard copy in my collection.

Awesome show all-around, but special props for the Truckin’> MLB jam> Spanish jam> Wharf

There’s something special about this version that’s apparent from the very start—like Jerry’s toast had a little extra butter on it tonight. The band sounds very loose, and they do go off the rails a bit during the crescendo jam, but all’s well that ends well, and that’s exactly what happens here, with some really funky jams that go off in all sorts of directions before finally settling into MLB jam. Whatever Jerry took that night, I want some. Must-hear material.

This is an really nice matrix. The soundboard was good the aud. was good, but mix them together, and you somehow gets this. This is, to me, a perfect matrix for 74 Dead. I cant quite describe why I like the sound of this so much, but give it a listen and see if it doesnt transport you back to 74 like it does me.

Subject: Hip, hip, hooray for Wall of Sound Matrix's!!!
Always a great day when another 74 Matrix makes its way onto the scene. I've only listened to a few snippets of this version thus far, but it seems to capture that great 74 sound and it's outdoors which is rare. I don't there is another one out there besides 5-25-74.

Kudos to Kevin and lets hope there's more where that came, 5-19-74, 6-28-74, 8-5-74 and 8-6-74 perhaps? :^)
